    Don't stand too close, the "behaviour" warning had it right.

    I'll now be offline Sunday, returning Monday evening (not away Fri-Sat as previously advertised).

    I'll bear that in mind, but as it's outside breeding season at the moment, I'm thinking they will be relatively well behaved. I hope so as I dragged my wife to a one of these small widelife parks on our honeymoon and she was attacked by a duck there (albeit comically). I suspect if one of these (much larger) fowl took a dislike to her it could be my last visit to one of these sort of places for a while

    My brother had a bad run with fauna parks, not only being attacked by a CBG but also needing stitches after being mistaken for cuttlefish by a sulphur-crested cockatoo.

    My only similar experience involved the behavioural problems of an ageing wombat called Bruce (the name based on having a similar temper to then RSL chief Bruce Ruxton.) It is little known that wombats can run at 40 km/h, about the speed of the world's fastest human sprinters. I have seen them do this quite often, but I first discovered it the hard way after Bruce spied me from maybe 50 metres away and, as was his inclination, charged. Expecting to outrun him easily, I was surprised to find that he was rapidly narrowing the gap between me and safety. Then I tripped over a ditch, and before I could get up, he had ripped a sizeable hole in my trouser leg.

    This will be my last post on cc.org for some time, because, much as I've grown to love this forum, it's proven to be a little distracting. I will no doubt miss you guys. All the best, Greg
